's an unannounced challenger at 43. >> yeah. the other part for karl rove is is it good for him to have people like news the media talking about anything but his competence. the competence problem, the wasted money you showed, the low record of victories they have, that's what we should also be talking, about not just a fact that he's got a problem with the tea party. >> hey, since i asked you to like us on facebook, we've actually gotten another thousand likes on facebook. ari, were you are one of those thousands? >> i am preone of those thousands. >> hey, like us on facebook. like as you lot. keep liking us. >> war on drones, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, just a day before the president's chief counter terrorism advisor, john brennan heads to capital hill for his hearing to take over the c.i. averment. the white house has to answer some tough questions about its overseas drone program. the catalyst is a white house memo obtained that justifies american citizens. civil liberties advocates and senator ron widen tweeted today every american has the right to know that their government belie

in elections. look at the proposals we're seeing now. karl rove wants to keep the fringies. and things like clinton did with school uniforms. and tell college students the jobs might be tough. what about the gun issue? should the republicans stick with the nra or tell wayne lapierre to get a real job? how could a party built other the decades on the people who left the democrats abandon those issues that attracted the rule south and the west people and the miners and the ranchers and the gun owners. and the people furious about immigration. how do you ban those people and keep a party? tonight an expert, a passionate believer that politics can get better. my colleague joe scarborough. here's the question. how do you keep this huge tent the republican party has built in the last 30 or 40 years with people from the south, the west, the miners, the ranchers, the religious right, all those people that have decided the republican party is their natural home and yet you have people in the fringe costing you your image. >> well, you've got to stand up to people on the fringe. you know, when partie

and medicaid. really, they are borrowing barack obama's lines. >> the most cynical, karl rove, i save it admiringly, he is about winning, not about policies, he believes the tax rate should be whatever it is in the tax rate in the campaign. he is getting attacked by the tea party side. he is trying to attack the so-called reasonable republicans against the nuts, rove was just attacking hannity, listen to this. >> the group that went out with the e-mails and fundraising entities, they get into the pocket of the person who owns the website or the political action committee. i am a volunteer, i don't take a dime from crossroads. >> richard, this is the fascinating current civil war in republican world, rove versus the tea party. >> i think he has done pretty well being a political consultant. i am going to be skeptical, even if he was sitting in what looked like the lobby of the holiday inn, this is a fascinating debate. this is what a party looks like when it has gone to an extreme, people recognize it does not work and they're trying to attack back. for the president, the white house a
connected, of course, with karl rove and the others who are very active in the last election cycle. what do you try to fix? what is the problem -- the republican problem you're trying to correct? >> our goal is to basically trying to institutionalize the william f. buckley rule when he said that the goal should be to try to nominate the most conservative candidate who can win, and that's going to be different in each individual state, but we saw looking back at this last cycle was some significant candidate quality problems. some of the mainstream candidates were like that. we had some really segment self-destructive candidates who ended up impacting ordinaries on the ballot too, like todd akin in missouri and richard murdock in indiana. our goal is to see if we can try to find those candidates who are going to be discipline and can raise the money and be competitive in a general election. >> is iowa one of your top priorities snou in. >> i think almost any race where we see an opportunity either to compete for an open seat or go after an incumbent in a red state, and there are a number of
. and i'm not in the business of defending karl rove. but if i could take a leaf from gene robinson's book and say this is a kind of step that makes sense if you want to elect republicans. but the problem is with the dominance of the tea party types, the religious right, and a lot of these state, you're going to see more republican nominees who are going to lose winnable races. rove wants to change that, although he is the one who contributed to creating it at almost every level over a long period of years. >> eugene robinson, bob shrum, great to have you on the program tonight. thank you so much for joining us. >>> remember to answer tonight's question there at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter at edshow and on facebook. we always want do know what you think, and appreciate that. >>> massachusetts republicans, let me tell you, folks, they are so desperate to win john kerry's senate seat, they might even give glenn beck's tv psychiatrist a shot. that's next. stay with us. legalzoom, you can take care of virtually all your important legal matters in just minutes. prot
as the washington republican elite, folks like karl rove, efforts like what we see spelled out in "the new york times" today, to control them, to corral them to, steal them away from candidates they may like, towards candidates who they think the establishment deems to be more elective. i've heard some republicans talking about the potential backlash it to, where there would be nothing that would fire up tea party activists on the base more than thinking that karl rove is trying to big foot them in telling them who to elect in primaries and that may have the opposite effect of riling up strong sentiment on the conservative base and encouraging tea party candidates, potentially encouraging conservative donors to put in money to oppose what karl rove is trying to do. >> the fringiness. the fringies being upset by the establishment. really quick here, lori montgomery. boston globe reporting there might be a romney that gets in this senate race. do you think that's realistic or silliness? >> you know, i can't imagine that the romneys -- >> your tone says it all. >> are up for another one of these.
much worse than the democratic super pacs in the last election cycle. karl rove's american crossroads had a 1.29% return on investment, spending $104 million. compare it to the house majority pac's 70% success rate on $30 million. another democratic super pac, majority pac is what it was called, had an even higher success rate. democratic super pacs did better in the last election because basically, they had a better message, with policies people actually cared about. it seems to me the republican super pacs were all based on a power grab. they had more money. but the money is meant to protect those at the very top. the wealthy. it's power versus populism. and this time around i think we did pretty well. i guess we could say that the citizens united beat citizens united based on where people were. but president obama's remarks three years ago are so true to this day. >> last week the supreme court reversed a century of law that i believe will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections. >> to spend without limit in
connell, karl rove, and their negative allies for all the attention. she considers her future political plans. although, a decision has not been made yet. joining me now is james carol, washington reporter for the louisville courier journal and more on this clearly conservatives see ashley judd as a legitimate threat to mitch mcconnell. what do you hear about the likelihood she could throw her hat in the ring? >> it's the number one conversation in kentucky and the political world here in washington. more than who might win the kentucky derby, i guess. we're all just waiting. we saw ashley judd a couple of weeks ago at the kentucky bluegrass ball, and she kind of tantalized us slightly by saying the people of kentucky need a fighter. i've got generations, ten generations, in the kentucky hills, and some of them were fighters, so i was among the skeptics and thought i don't really think she was going to run, but now i'm kind of leaning that maybe she will run. >> with political candidates like that, it's hard to think she won't. kentucky has been solidly red for decades now. james, giving it e
